What is the Clickfunnels affiliate payout?

When it comes to Clickfunnels affiliate commission, the company are not playing around. A Clickfunnels affiliate earns a recurring 40% on sales of Clickfunnels. Affiliates also receive 40% from sales of one-time promotions or Clickfunnel products – they allow you to make a commission from any of their services. For example, Clickfunnels sell online webinars, books and more, not just the funnel software.

Another bonus of making use of the Clickfunnels affiliate program is that if anyone is to sign up and become a monthly paying member under you, you receive 5% commission too! The opportunities they offer for you to make money are almost too good to be true.

Are there any rules for earning commission?

Commission payments come through after a strict 45-day ‘cooling off’ period. This is enforced to make sure there are no refunds or cancellations in memberships before you receive commission for them! Clickfunnels are good… but of course, they won’t give away money for anything.

How do I receive my commission payments?

Clickfunnels affiliates can choose to receive payments through PayPal or Check. PayPal users receive their commission weekly, where there is a $50 minimum. However, Check users receive their payments in monthly instalments. The way you receive your payments is therefore largely up to you.

How do I join?

If you are a paying Clickfunnels member (if you’re not you should be), you automatically have access to their affiliate program. There is no Clickfunnels affiliate signup or application process to worry about.

How does it work?

Using Clickfunnels for affiliate marketing works by the software using something called sticky cookies. Once a customer has clicked on your affiliate link in your funnel, a sticky cookie is attached. This basically means that any further purchases of Clickfunnels products or sign-ups once the cookie is attached will get you your commission.

How can I boost my affiliate commissions?

A highly attractive feature of the Clickfunnels software and affiliate program is its transparency. There is no hidden agenda or Clickfunnels affiliate strategy as such, the ways that you can make money are clear and easy to grasp.

One way that you can make the most of the affiliate program is to use the ‘share funnels’ feature. Not everyone has caught on to the profits that can be made from this feature yet, especially not in the UK market… So why not get a step ahead?

The feature enables you to share your fantastic and successful funnel creations to other Clickfunnel users (and even non-users). When you share your funnels and a person uses your Clickfunnels affiliate link if they are a Clickfunnel member the funnel will be automatically added to their list of usable funnel templates. If not, the person is asked to start their free 14-day trial. Once a free trial is up, if the person stays on and becomes a paying Clickfunnels member, you receive a commission. A simple but very effective way to make some cash!

So you’ve started using Clickfunnels affiliate links… how do you track your progress?

The affiliate program is also transparent in this respect, as it allows you to fully monitor your progress. There is the option to view weekly or monthly reports on the status and successes of your affiliate links. You can go even further and review more detailed statistics, such as which of your funnels and which products within your funnel produced the affiliates. Nothing is left to the imagination, so you can’t really go wrong.

It’s important to note that, if your shared funnels aren’t resulting in much affiliate success, you might want to take a look at the funnel itself. People are far less likely to click through your funnel or sign-up to Clickfunnels themselves if you are not setting a good example. Make sure your marketing funnels are up to scratch and are successfully bringing in leads before you start trying to make the commission from them.

Any Clickfunnels affiliate bonuses?

Of course, Clickfunnels don’t stop there. If you manage to get 100 paying Clickfunnels members that have signed up underneath you… you receive $1000 per month. Hard to believe? I know. Clickfunnels call this their ‘dream car’ bonus prize as if you achieve it, they will give you the funds to lease any car you can think of. Always pictured yourself driving round in a brand-spanking new BMW or Jaguar? Get stuck into the Clickfunnels affiliate program.

Are there any rules?

It might all seem too good to be true, but there really aren’t any hidden rules or conditions to this program. Aside from the 45-day ‘cooling off’ period mentioned earlier, which makes sure you only receive money for legitimate sign-ups and purchases… There really aren’t any more rules.

Clickfunnels simply enforce some guidelines, which hopefully honest and hardworking users would naturally stick to anyway. For example, they ask for their transparency to be consistent with their users too. You must, therefore, be honest and authentic about the use of affiliate links. Don’t sneak your link in, make sure you highlight the fact that you are using it to make money. Another obvious guideline is to avoid spamming people. It’s not big, it’s not clever… and it doesn’t work. Whether this is via email or on social media, just don’t spam.
